I have a GAS powered Club Car that will not operate at slow speeds. When it runs it goes too fast and when I let back on the gas, it dies down. It is very jerky and I cannot start up and run at slow speeds. I believe it is a problem with the clutch/drive, but I don't know how to adjust it or what parts need to be replaced. I have access exploded views of the parts involved if that is the problem. I originally thought it was an accellorator problem, but the engine starts and runs fine through the lower speed ranges.

I have the engine starting and running well, but the cart does not want to start and operate at a low speed.
Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic and I wonder whether you’re still waiting for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will do my best to find a Professional to assist you right away. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
Good Morning Michelle :
In your listings, I did not see a categorie that applied to my gas powered golf cart (only electric ) so I hope you can cover this or direct it to others familiar with the gas carts. I would like to get an opinion as to what is going on with my cart, so if you need further descriptions of the symptoms, please let me know. I am an engineer, but I would like someone more directly familiar with golf carts to give me advice to address this problem. I have a couple theories of my own, but would like to hear from an expert in this field.
Sometimes, finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly
Hi, Thanks for letting me try to help you with your problem.That sounds like your governor needs adjusted.Set the RPM where you feel comforrable.
Hello : Thanks for your notes, but do you have the figures to which your instructions are referring? They would be necessary for me to perform this adjustment.
In looking at the governor adjustment as the problem, I do not have a problem with limiting the speed of the cart, but my problem is that I cannot operate it at a lower speed. Will the improper adjustment of the governor not just limit the top speed or could you explain how it would allow me to drive at slower speeds? My problem is that I have to take the engine up to about 1/3 speed before the clutch will engage. I hope this better describes my problem. Let me know if you still believe your first proposal will work.
The governor not only controls the top rpm but it also controls and regulates the operating rpm.I don't have the figures no.Click Here. THis is maybe a better explanation
